RAMA, ON (Monday, June 18, 2018) – Casino Rama Resort is pleased to announce the iconic Grammy-winning, rock guitarist, songwriter and film producer Slash will be making his Entertainment Centre debut alongside Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators with the Living the Dream Tour. The group will electrify the Great Indoors this fall, Thursday, October 4 (8 PM).
Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspiratorshave announcedthat they will release their new album titled Living the Dream on September 21 via Slash’s own label Snakepit Records in partnership with Roadrunner Records. Living the Dream marks Slash’s fourth solo album and third with his band featuring Myles Kennedy (Vocals), Brent Fitz (Drums), Todd Kerns (Bass & Vocals) and Frank Sidoris (Guitar & Vocals). A pre-order for the new album will begin on July 25.
For Living the Dream, Slash and his band re-teamed with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Iggy Pop, Incubus); the group is currently putting the finishing touches on the powerful 12 song collection. The band’s previous albums World on Fire and Apocalyptic Love, debuted in the top ten on 12 charts globally, spawned three #1 hit singles at U.S. Rock Radio and earned worldwide praise garnering Slash some of the best critical acclaim of his career. World On Fire was tagged by Guitar World as “another bold and unapologetically riffy statement” and “a varied, immersive and incredibly hard rocking effort” (December 2014). Rolling Stone described Apocalyptic Love — the band’s debut album — as “filled with head bangers and plenty of fancy fretwork” and Revolver declared it “a collection of lean, high-octane rock-and-roll tunes built to be blasted out of open-top sports cars, or more suitably, open-air stadiums” (May 2012).
